Downtown Cleanup - South Park Blocks


During this holiday season, lets give back to the city we call home. Join SOLVE for a day of downtown litter cleanups, in partnership with the Portland Business Alliance and the Portland Lodging Alliance. Portland is a strong, resilient city, but it needs help. By volunteering, you are helping to not only beautify our city streets, but also ensuring our waterways and local wildlife stay healthy too. Keep our river and streets clean, enjoy the sights of Downtown Portland, and know that the work you are engaging in has many benefits for our community, our local businesses and our environment! Please note that this event is a litter cleanup and will not include graffiti removal.
